   Hi, I had a previous user name here (76kcfdeng) but I was inactive for a long time so its gone. I had a build thread under that name but I can't find it either.
   Here are some new pics of the boat with a homebuilt upper deck. I just finished it recently. I used many parts from a scrapped rental toon. The uprights are steel because I had it and can weld it. The cross braces, outer rub rail, railing and some of the fasteners came from the old toon. The floor is 1/2" ply with a 2 part rubberized deck coating impregnated with sand. I built it myself since I could not find a kit and having one built would be expensive.
   It is great shade/shelter and lots of fun to jump off of and sun on. It did slow the boat down some, good excuse for a new motor, just need money! I read a lot of opinions about stability and such, I think it is quite stable and I have no worries.
  Enjoy, Glen













Whole album for pics from the beginning.

Cool, when I was looking for my toon I looked at a 30' party hut with upper deck. I wanted it so bad, I already had plans on closing off the bottom and adding AC/ heat, fridge, beds and a slide on the upper deck. Does yours sit low in the rear with the added weight?

Well glad you're back, so don't disappear on us this time Big smile.  Hang around, its slow right now, but it'll pick up when winter leaves and everybody's ready to dust off the boat for the waters.

  It does sit a little lower, maybe 2" as far as I can tell.  I have canvas that used to connect to the biminis to enclose the whole thing. I may try to modify it to attach to the top, its hardly been used.
  Wildcatdude, I will try but I spend more time using and upgrading it than talking about it here.Wink

Welcome back! Nothing better than a top deck to jump off of, that is unless you have a water slide like a couple I have seen. The steel works fine in my opinion. Thats what I used on mine and had no issues.

   Glad to hear the steel worked for you, I have seen a couple with steel so I figured it would work well. I don't know if I want to add the weight of a slide although it would be fun, not much room for one anyway with a 20' boat and 12' upper deck.  Jumping off is plenty of fun! Waiting for warm weather to get it in the water again.
